  • yes. so hard. I'm out of the house for about four hours in the morning while I'm at school. My parents watch my boys. I get home at noon and somedays I just think, how do people who stay home ALL DAY, EVERYDAY stay sane!? they must have more patience than i do.

  • At times yes. Would it be hard to have 3 full time jobs with no breaks whatsoever? Well that's what i have & let me tell you it gets pretty crazy. Some days i would just like to think by myself let alone pee by myself.

  • I was a SAHM for years and it's harder than working. You're on call 24-7, play dates, school, cooking, cleaning, the list goes on. I'm working now, my sons are adults, and I love it, not saying I didn't love being a SAHM, I did but now I have a social life and time for friends.

  • I've never been a sahm except for the 4 months I stayed home with my son after he was born. Some days I wish I had more time with my boy. Some days I'm relieved to go to work.

  • I have been a SAHM since 1985 and I raised 4 sons to adulthood. Honestly, it wasn't hard, it wasn't easy, it was just life. I stayed busy with my children and now that they are all grown I am a SAHW and I love it. I don't get bored, I stay busy during the day.
